Over the summer I saw an article from Make Magazine about making your own laundry detergent. While we’re talking about eating healthy on a budget, this is a nice time to talk about a slightly different way to save some money at the grocery store. (On a non-food item of course, but still might be a part of your grocery budget.)
I like to buy the more earth friendly, natural brands of household cleaning products (Seventh Generation, Ecos, Citra Solv are a few of my favorite brands) for both the environmental and health concerns. These natural cleaning products are typically more expensive than commercial brands and can quickly increase your grocery bill. Much like saving money on preparing your own food – making your own cleaning products at home can totally pay off too.
